2023 Scientific Meeting - Call for 3-Minute Thesis Competitors
The American Academy of Health Behavior invites graduate students and newly graduated post-doctoral professionals within 2-years of their post doctoral degree and not yet in a tenure-track position to participate in the annual 3-minute Thesis (3MT) competition at the AAHB Scientific Meeting.
The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges presenters to deliver compelling pre-recorded oration on their research agenda, highlighting the significance and impact of their research in no more than 180 seconds using a single slide.
How to compete
Your abstract must be accepted for presentation at the 2023 Scientific Meeting on San Francisco, CA
After you receive your notification of acceptance, return to this page to register your intent to compete in the 3MT.
If entered into the competition, it is expected that you will register for and attend the conference.
The research must be the student's or postdoc's original research (i.e., student thesis or dissertation project), or may originate from a student-led research question that stems from a faculty or mentor research project. Research that is the outcome of a faculty or mentor project without significant contribution to the study design, data collection, data analysis, and synthesis is not eligible for this competition.
A single static PowerPoint slide is permitted. No slide transitions, animations or 'movement' of any kind are allowed. The slide will be presented from the beginning of the oration.
No additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files) are permitted within the PowerPoint slide.
No additional props (e.g. costumes, musical instruments, laboratory equipment) are permitted.
Presentations are to be spoken word (e.g., no poetry or songs).
Presentations are limited to exactly 3 minutes and will be timed. Presentations are considered to have commenced when a presenter starts his or her presentation through either movement or speech.
